Shabby Old White Angels ~ Cloche Party

For the holidays I chose to showcase under my glass cloche an old angel of mine. It's hard for me to grasp that a whole lot of my holiday decorations are vintage. Not because I bought them as vintage decor but because I bought them new and have had them for so many years they are now vintage. Oh dear...does that distress me! I am also just realizing a lot of the toys I see in the antique shops, that were once played with by my two sons, are now vintage too..... but I digress. (smile) This angel is very shabby.....she was painted white and has touches of gold and she has no face. I just love her. She stands on "snow", along with an old vintage "sayings" pink ornament and a sparkly BELIEVE sign. I believe, don't you?

For more fabulous holidays cloches please stop Marty's blog, A Stroll Thru Life. You may just pick up a decorating idea or two..... or three. :) Thank you Marty for hosting this fun party.

She's so pretty! Great idea. I have a vintage angel made of aqua feathers and I adore her. She would be lovely under a cloche.

I think this one is very sweet. I know what you mean about vintage. When they talk about vintage clothes from the 70's being so popular, I wish I had my kept my things from high school!

Hi Lynn! I remember a cloche my mother had at home many years ago; an amazing object, that some day was broken... ;))

There is a weird bridge waiting for you at Blogtrotter. Enjoy and have a great weekend!!

Lynn, your angel reminds me on the angels that I carried in my shop in Norman, Oklahoma. The lady that made them lived in the outskirts of town and actually excavated the clay from the grounds on her property and sculpted and fired them. Brings back memories. Yours is equally beautiful.

What would our worlds be without a cloche?

Michelle@Sweet Something said...

She is so pretty! You've taken good care of her!

The Rose Room said...

she is beautiful, its hilarious to think that our own things we bought from new are vintage! Rachaelxo

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Lynn, I know I posted on here earlier, but I'm missing you on the Pink Sat. train. I wanted to stop by and say, "Thanks!" I can't wait to see the ornies you sent! Happy Dance!

XO,

Sheila :-)

Sue said...

Lynn, I like how you combined the "old" with the new- the believe sign. Sometimes there is just no substitute for using our old shabby stuff. It can't ALL be new! LOL Hope all is well. I am so behind visiting everyone. I just want to feel well for Christmas. Please say a little prayer for me! hugs, Sue

Susie Jefferson said...

This cloche thing is a lovely idea - I don't believe I've seen one in the UK! I'd love to do some little arrangement like this (I'm wondering if a cheese dome would work.)

My mother was very special - and got more of a kick out of making the clothes for the doll, than I did with playing with the doll. Just think - if we'd heard of Barbie when I was that age... I think she'd have gone into orbit!

Happy Pink Saturday!

Laura said...

I loved what you said about decorations you bought becoming vintage.

isn't that the truth?

Where did the time go-?

Debra @ Common Ground said...

Hi Lynn, your little "vintage" angel is so sweet and I love how you've added in the wonderful ornament and "believe" hanger, really sets it off. Yeah, let's not talk about us being "vintage", it's a little scary at time. LOL!

blushing rose said...

How lovely your cloche arrangement, Lynn ... I love all & hold closely my vintage decorations/ornies.

My Dear Lynn....Vintage Is In...as YOU know!!! Now don't distress....just because your Decorations are showing their age, YOU are not! Sorry I've missed several weeks of Pink Saturday and your posts. Hopefully, I'm back for awhile without interruptions! Come see me....it' Snowed in Texas!

KarenHarveyCox said...

Oh Lynne, I love that angel cloche idea. Everything looks so special when it is under glass. I have to say that if it weren't for blogging I wouldn't even know what a cloche was, all that I know is that it always make my head turn when I see these displays.

A pretty little vignette, as usual :)

Hi Lynn,

I just love the angel cloche. I had one cloche with a pretty bird's nest under it. I made it last spring and enjoyed it all summer until it finally sold last month. I guess it's time for me to get me another one for spring! lol

Jennifer said...

It looks so pretty. I love the vintage ornament as well (reminds me of our trees when I was little). The believe sign is just too cute. Of course we "believe" here!

Hope all is well and that you are enjoying your holidays.

Hello Lynn,

I like what you displayed under your cloche for this season :-) It's simple and love the all white, well with a spark of red from the ornament.

The angel is real sweet too. Oh I don't think I care of it is that long already. It just means that it has lots of memories to share.

Mizpah,
Li
